Among camera manufacturers, Olympus may not be as well-known as some of its counterparts. However, Olympus probably deserves more consideration, as it has created a niche in the camera marketplace by shifting its focus away from DSLR cameras.

Olympus has been manufacturing cameras for several decades, dating back to the days of film photography. After the market migrated from film to digital photography, Olympus continued making cameras, starting with digital SLRs, or DSLRs.

With Canon and Nikon dominating the world of DSLRs, however, Olympus eventually shifted its attention in another direction. And Olympus has found its niche with mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (ILCs) and waterproof point and shoot cameras.

These cameras have proven to be extremely popular, delivering excellent style and performance in a fun-to-use design. If you want a camera that’s quite a bit different in look and feel from the typical DSLR camera, Olympus cameras are worth considering.

Over the past several years, mirrorless cameras have advanced significantly. These cameras are internally different from DSLRs, which are a far more established design. As technology improves, however, more photographers – both amateur and professional – are considering the benefits of owning a mirrorless camera.

The small size and great feature set of a mirrorless camera may appeal to you, too. Perhaps you’re curious about mirrorless cameras and want to learn more. Perhaps you know you want to buy a mirrorless camera but need a bit of guidance as to which product is the best. In either case, you’ve come to the right place.

Both mirrorless cameras and DSLRs use a large image sensor to record digital photographs, and both offer high-end components for excellent image quality and performance. However, there are design differences between the two camera types.

A DSLR has a mirror inside that sits in front of the image sensor and reflects the light traveling through the lens upward to the optical viewfinder. This design dates back to the days of 35mm film cameras.

I love my Olympus EM10 smile 
It didn't cost me a fortune, and it's so compact and light it's a pleasure to walk around with!
90% of the time I walk around with the super small 17mm 1.8 lens, which has enough low light performance for me as well :)

Most of my photography is done while travelling and I've been very happy with my Olympus EM1 Mk2. Paired with the 12-100 (equivalent to 24-200) pro lens it's very compact, high quality and can cover most situations without breaking my back (eg on a recent 5 day trek in Nepal I simply couldn't have carried a large camera/lens setup). Super fast autofocus and amazing image stabilisation. Image quality is not quite full frame standard but still very good with the pro lenses, of which there are many. The big downside is low light performance - it's really disappointing, so that needs consideration. Otherwise, I highly recommend this system.

No EXIF info to see what camera you used. Did they let you take the photos with a non-Olympus camera?

Good choice. If I was going mirrorless that is the camera I would chose. Don't think it would make me a better photographer, however, so I'll stick with my Nikon D7200. You were fortunate to get the Olympus man to take your through the camera. One other thing holding me back it that I would have to learn a whole new menu system.
